12 Maine teams are participating in theNE DCMP. There are 2 divisions of 45 teams playing on two fields. NE FIRST is starting a tradition of naming the District Championship fields after notable figures in STEM fields from New England. This year, the two fields are named after astronauts Stephanie Wilson and Jessica Meir. They inspire us!
